DENVER - Chinese New Year begins next Sunday and it's the year of the snake. But at the Denver Dumb Friends League. It's the year of the cat.
The Dumb Friends League wants to dispel the myths that cats aren't a social, friendly or kid-loving pet.
"You can train a cat just as many things as you can train a dog: sit, stay, come, roll over and high five," Chris Gallegos, spokesman for the DDFL, said.
During this year, the non-profit will focus on educating people about felines, and try to increase the number of adoptions.
"Current statistics show that around 70 to 75 percent of people in Colorado are looking for a dog. We're trying to make sure we expand that number out for cats as well," Gallegos said
Starting now and through Feb. 15, DDFL is offering half off adult dogs and cats, those are the animals one year or older.
This will put the price on your new feline friend at around $30.
